keep your friends close but your enemies closer
Gone are the dayz
Published on April 27, 2017 By Anthony R In Politics

Some may say I need a psychiatrist, but I've always enjoyed politics and the topics involved. With that being said, wading into the sewage of political discourse these days is an exercise in madness. Gone are the days when such discourse could lead to anything remotely resembling a civilized exchange of ideas. We've ushered in a new era where most people who have such interest are more out to prove that they are right, and any person with any disagreement, or objection to any policy and idea they believe is either antisemitic, a sex maniac, stupid, bigoted, homophobic, or much worse. In such an environment where people are so dug in trying to prove they are right even when empirical evidence proves that they are wrong, it becomes an exercise in futility to attempt any conversion at all. It can be somewhat funny to see the bizarre reactions and silly name calling when the argument is lost, but that is only a temporary giggle and not a really a lasting enjoyment.

I just don't believe they or their faithful see it. For years now I comment a lot on Yahoo, who wouldn't post a positive article on Trump if he cured cancer, and the numbers that fail to grasp it is staggering.

Its not surprising to me that large numbers of Yahoo users are motivated against Trump... consider that in California, 4 million people voted against Trump and all Yahoo can muster up is a thousand or so seething leftists who approve of Trump bashing comments, most of them live in Los Angeles, or ISIS controlled regions of the Mid East.

I am a quote-unquote "liberal" and I'm pretty nice. One of the reasons you don't have people testifying and speaking on the record is some who did that were prosecuted and jailed during Obama's 2 terms.

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe"

Coffee not beer.



This explanation works for me.

You are free to come up with your own explanation.

Why are people in a bad mood?

Because for a large segment of the population the economy

has been in the toilet since 2008.

Costs and taxes are going up and up but pay checks are not keeping up.

People can't find the jobs they need.

People who are working don't know for how long.

Climate change is just a magicians distraction to take our attention

away from the real danger that is artificial intelligence.

Climate change is just a magicians distraction to take our attention

It's a money grab. When has anyone of any political persuasion ever seen the number of politicians, that never care about anything that wasn't making them money, so involved in anything since  Climate Change? I'll tell you. It's the perfect crime. They can suck billions of dollars of taxpayer money over years without ever producing any evidence of any scheme working. Who is going to be around in 100 years to hold them to the .2% of 1 degree change in temperature? They smell blood in the water, and the liberal/progressive lemmings are jumping in feet first. The climate changed before man, and will after man is gone. Yes, let's do try and keep the planet clean. That's sound thinking, but CO2? A gas of life for plants on earth (no plants, then no animals). We aren't even close to the highest levels of CO2 on this planet has seen.

But tornados, hurricanes, and wildfires their killing more and more each year, right? Wrong, yes more people are affected because there are more people. The 1970 US census have the US population at 203,392,031, that's 120+ million less people than today. So where are these people at? Fly over country where the tornado's are. The southern and east coasts where hurricanes are, and dryer areas of California where wildfires occur.

You better bet that if solar ever becomes dominate as a power source, there will be a sun tax. They try to get you in by saying how you can sell excess power back to the utilities (some places are all ready blocking this) an that is true, now. They will find some way to get you to pay a monthly fee for it. Remember when internet was $19 a month (or less Juno), sure it was dial-up broad band was $25. Today I pay $70 for cable internet, and those companies are making money hand over fist. They could charge $25 and still make money. The Electric companies won't let you off the hook either n matter what natural resource is used.

If liberals want to feel good about themselves, give up your car and electrical devices, and plant a tree. It will do much more than giving money to the government.

Nicaragua, Syria, and the USA.....



Strange bedfellows if ever there were ones.

Could the liberals have Stockholm syndrome?

Would this explain their views on terrorists?
